WebSite Improvement

Postby sploutch » Mon Apr 18, 2011 8:27 am

Hello everyone,
I think it would be very useful to better exploit JetDroid.org, I explain :

On "www.jetdroid.org/index.php" wé can find one (or multiple pages) with the status of the project, wiki, news, updates, support functions etc. ...

A menu bar to navigate better that would lead to the various sections mentioned above.

And of course a menu item "Forum" who would refer to "www.jetdroid.org/forum"

I am a web developper, if you want help, contact me ;)

I was thinking of a menu or some kind of better navigation for some time. I think what you described comes very close to what I had in mind. However, I am good at writing code and not so good at web design and development. Thus the site stayed pretty much like it was ...

Your help would be greatly appreciated :)

I am more than interested to see your ideas.

What do you mean by this? Currently all database stuff is handled by the phpbb software. I was not (yet) messing around with that ;)

I think a wiki homepage JetDroid would be a very good thing.
We can use the exelent MediaWiki

NitDroid and Cyanogenmod user MediaWiki for the wiki.
Watch this :

I already started implementing a wiki. You can have a look here http://www.jetdroid.org/wiki/doku.php. It ist not yet complerte - the theme needs some more tweaking. Is there any one here, who could help modifying the wiki theme?

I don't really remember why I started with DokuWiki but I think the features are equal to MediaWiki but I think there is a module that allows phpbb authentification. However, if all this is better in MediaWiki and we can make it look the way it should, we can also switch easily.

Your wiki is http://www.jetdroid.org/wiki/doku.php
In the future it would be that either http://www.jetdroid.org/
and the forum http://www.jetdroid.org/forum/

I think MediaWiki is much better.
Its interface will require only the logo of the project (see the links mentioned in my last post)
It would be preferable to migrate to it.

For authentication, we can of course use a login and password common to all the wiki administrator. (Or creates one per person.)
Use of phpbb authentication would be long and tedious.

If you migrate to wikimedia and you give me an ID, I will be happy to implement it :)

Is it possible to change the wiki lay out to something like the lay out we have now? I quite get used to this one and beginning to like it :P.

Maybe we should just have a non wiki site? the discussions can be on the forum and the rest of the site is just information on the status of the project etc.

I had another look at MediaWiki. It seems like it has improved a lot in extendability since I looked last. Even login with phpbb accounts seems possible. So, i think it will be a good option. I will let you know once it is ready to use.

Howerver, it would be great if we could find some help in designing a custom theme that fits to the current forum. Can anyone here help?

Cheers,
Dopi
